A Beautiful Film that Deserves to Be Seen
10 November 2002 | by E-Z-RiderSee all my reviews

The director manages to pack a lot of local color and drama into a spare 82 minutes. The costumes and scenery are gorgeous, and the acting is superb. And the story itself is both poignant and uplifting. A romantic drama in the Ayn Rand tradition.
